V1 VoIP offers you the ability to resell our SIP termination services and solutions to your clients. Here we discuss everything you need to start reselling SIP termination.

SIP stands for Session Initiation Protocol. SIP termination is a service that allows you to use VoIP technology in order to make outgoing voice calls to external phone networks around the world. SIP trunking is the use of VoIP to facilitate the connection of a private branch exchange (PBX) to the Internet. In effect, the Internet replaces the conventional telephone trunk. This allows an enterprise to communicate with fixed and mobile telephone subscribers worldwide.

In order to take advantage of SIP trunking, a business must have a PBX that connects to all internal end users, an Internet telephony service provider (ITSP) and a gateway that serves as the interface between the PBX and the ITSP. One of the most significant advantages of SIP trunking is its ability to combine data, voice and video in a single line, eliminating the need for separate physical media for each mode. The result is reduced overall cost and enhanced reliability for multimedia services.

When talking about its service to communicate on a broader level, SIP termination provides features such as:

* Video conferencing
* Voice calls
* Streaming media
* Instant messaging
* Playing online games

What is SIP Trunking for Resellers

The phrase “SIP Trunking” or “SIP Trunks”, is increasingly common in the world of telecom. In the last few years, the telecommunications industry has standardized on SIP as the protocol of choice for phone calls on the data network. SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) is the technology used for establishing a voice communication session on a data network like the Internet. A SIP “session” might be a regular VoIP phone call between two participants or a multi-party conference call.

What Is SIP Trunking?
A SIP Trunk provides the same service you get from a traditional analog phone line except a SIP Trunk is a “virtual” phone line which is provided by V1 VoIP. We use your data circuit (T1, Cable Modem, DSL, etc) to connect your phone system back to their network.

SIP Trunks Save Customers Money!
Because there are no physical lines that need to be maintained with a SIP Trunk, they are substantially less expensive than traditional telephone service. SIP Trunking can save you up to 50% and more on your monthly bill, depending upon the types and quantities of calls you are making.

What SIP Trunks Do You Need?
The number of SIP Trunks is determined by a few factors. Your Internet connection is an important consideration. SIP Trunks consume bandwidth. Depending upon the quantity of phone calls and need for data bandwidth, you may have to expand your data circuit. First, how many concurrent calls does your business need? As a typical rule of thumb, you’ll need approximately one SIP trunk for each 2-3 users.

V1 VoIP is a leading SIP trunk provider and we have the added advantage of providing our enhanced PBX to go alongside SIP Trunk services and solutions. Contact us and we’ll be glad to see just how much money our resellers make and how you can save your customers money.

SIP Trunking and Simultaneous Calls

Now that you have access to V1 VoIP’s SIP trunk services, you will need to determine the number of SIP trunks you will need is calculating your trunk requirements. To do this you will need to know your call volume and your bandwidth.

1. What is your call volume?
Call volume is the amount of both inbound and outbound calls made at the same time. If you are not running call monitoring trafficking software, have an assistant or receptionist keep track of the amount of inbound calls during the week. Have them monitor if one day is busier than another or a specific time of day? It is more important to know an approximate number of calls than to say one trunk for every four employees. For outbound calls, estimate how many employees are originating calls (versus answering incoming calls) during a busy hour and how long they are on the phone.

2. How much bandwidth do I need?
Once you understand your call volume needs, then you can determine the bandwidth you will need for your SIP trunks. You don’t want to waste bandwidth you don’t need. Most businesses new to SIP trunking have an inclination to either be super stingy with their bandwidth and hope the connection is clear enough for the company needs or to over-design for the highest clarity. V1 VoIP recommends to use approximately 20% additional bandwidth to be available to cover administrative traffic, control and signaling.

Hosted PBX vs SIP Trunking For Your Business

Hosted PBX and SIP trunking for an on-premise PBX are services that a business might consider to implement a phone system. There are many factors to consider when selecting a business phone system for your organization. Security, flexibility, scalability, and ongoing costs and maintenance are some of the key differences between choosing a hosted VoIP solution and a SIP trunking service.

They are both VoIP solutions with similar functions, but they differ in key logistical, technical, and financial respects. Here are some key differentiators between hosted PBX and on-premise services.

Upfront Hardware Costs
On-premise hardware is required for SIP trunking. To set up a hosted PBX, your office will need IP phones, routers, and business-grade broadband service, while V1 VoIP “hosts” the actual PBX servers and maintains them, so no additional hardware is needed. An on premise PBX and SIP trunking require significant upfront capital expenditure. IT staff must install on-site IP PBX servers and connect a SIP trunking service. In addition, it is often recommended that a business install separate Internet connectivity for the SIP trunking service.

Even More Ongoing Costs
Once you set up your hosted phone system, you will pay a monthly subscription fee to use the VoIP service. One pricing scheme that SIP trunking services use is per channel. Each channel allows you to make one phone call simultaneously. If you need to have ten employees on the phone at the same time, you might need 10 SIP channels to accommodate them. Charging by the channel is typically a flat rate per month plan. SIP trunking services can charge per minute.

Maintenance
With hosted PBX, the only maintenance responsibilities come when adding users, changing features, and other internal housekeeping while V1 VoIP takes care of server and software maintenance. For on-prmise SIP trunks, you would handle everything. As the servers are stored on your property, and their upkeep will be left to the owner.

Scalability
SIP trunking phone systems can scale out to an extent, but then require an additional purchase of more on-premise servers when you expand significantly. One PBX can typically handle up to a couple hundred phones. V1 VoIP has virtually unlimited space for your users. Hosted VoIP phone systems allow you to add new phones and users to your phone system in a few simple steps. It’s typically so easy that a non-IT professional can handle it.

Still not sure which of these systems works best for your business? Contact V1 VoIP or sign up now and we will walk you through the pros and cons for your company to make the best decision.
